Real World San Diego cast announced; archive offers list of Real World songs.
In preparation for tomorrow evening’s debut of The Real World San Diego, MTV introduces us to the seven strangers that will be living in the crime-infested house. But although Bunim-Murray appears to be once again giving us a group indistinguishable from recent casts, they still excel at filling episodes with great new music. And as Adtunes noticed, the production company’s music archives offers a rather comprehensive history of music that aired during past episodes of their shows, including Road Rules. Want to know what song was “heard when Ace and Mallory share some kisses” or what records were featured on Battle of the Sexes? They have you covered, although the playlist for The Simple Life is currently empty.
